Thanks Haim!

I got into this situation with some unsupported hacking, and am not sure 
whether I would have hit this same issue without it or not.

Do you believe this stale data was simply a result of trying to add a 
Host while it had a default iptables configuration active? If it's that 
simple I'm happy to open the bug. But if it was a result of trying to 
manually convert an old Data NFS Domain into an Export NFS Domain that's 
not worth opening a bug since an official feature to do this is in 

Please advise.
